In my trip to India in 2010, I could see and meet many different people. There were people who catched my heart and soul, and some other who just passed by.
In my opinion foreigners get different feelings than Indians, those, look at what surround them with different eyes than foreigners do, mostly because they are used to all since they were born.
They were 5 intense weeks.
What It is going on in India, at the end of the day, it's not much different than what's happening in the rest of the world: cities, mountains, nature, people, culture, human contact and human being....but personally, it's definitely more beautiful to my eyes.
